My Wife Thinks You're Dead

Rick is a musician in New Orleans who can't seem to find his crowd.
While searching for a venue to play soon he befriends bartender Melanie who's having a faltering relationship with Mike, a young heroin addict.

A slow marching anti-coming of age theme, where characters are wandering in a state of vague perplexity and don't really seem to ever get anywhere.
